SynTherm® – Insulating Materials SynTherm® P

SynTherm® P is a flexible polyester film based on polyethylene terephthalate. With increasing thickness the film appears to be cloudy or milky white.

With its excellent balance of electrical properties SynTherm® P offers many constructional possibilities for the electrical industry. It is suitable for use in a temperature range from -40 °C to +140 °C short-term.
